Obsidian White Noise Robusto: Quick Review

Obsidian White Noise Robusto Cigar
I pick up a sampler from time to time to get a nice selection of sticks to review and different cigars to smoke. The Obsidian White Noise was part of a sampler, but you can pick one up at Cigar.com for $7.25.

Wide bands always worry me when it comes to wrapper damage. This band had so much glue that it took a knife to get under the seam, but it came off without damaging the wrapper. The oily, Colorado colored wrapper was rolled on with seamless care, there were only a few fine veins and it was covered by a good looking triple cap.

From the foot there was a mild barnyard aroma and the free cold draw had flavors of red wine and toast. Once burning the initial medium bodied flavors were a tasty mix of nuts and sweet cream. As the but progressed there were notes of toast, sugar, oak, mild earth and a dash of black pepper.

This was a nice, mellow, well burning, medium bodied stick with a smooth flavor mix. It was a great cigar to relax with on Fathers day.
